Find out whether you should be opening an RRSP or TFSA (QUIZ)

Feb 24 2023, 9:27 pm

When saving for retirement, Canadians can often feel overwhelmed by the process. How much should I budget for retirement savings? Do I make enough to save solely for retirement? And — the big one — should I save in a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) or Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP)?

While TFSAs have been the go-to for young Canadians who need flexibility with their savings, RRSPs have become more appealing in recent years — with changes like the Lifelong Learning Plan (LLP) and the Home Buyers’ Plan.

RRSPs are also a great way to lower your taxable income and potentially increase the likelihood of you getting a return come tax time. Make sure to mark down this year’s March 1st deadline to ensure your RRSP really counts for the upcoming tax period.
